At the risk of being a Pathe News bore, but what the heck, I have posted it anyhow just because its so b****y good.

I think it shows some of the Nash collection aircraft that now reside in the RAF museum being restored in a BEA hangar at LHR. Note the Wellington in the background.

The RAFM's is a T.10 - wasn't it turret-less at that time?

The Wellington was part of the Nash collection, so it does fit.
